Can Suu Kyi Govern?
Gwen Robinson, Financial Times
Aung San Suu Kyi cuts an incongruous figure on the campaign trail. In her fitted blouse and pencil-slim sarong, with her coiffed hair adorned with flowers, she could be on her way to tea with a visiting VIP rather than campaigning for tomorrow’s elections, the most meaningful vote in Myanmar, her homeland, in more than two decades. Then again, since her release from nearly 15 years of house arrest in late 2010, tea with official envoys, business leaders and artists who have flocked from around the world has been a regular feature of life in her faded villa.
TAGGED: Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi
